Lindsey Graham’s Opinion On The New Attorney General

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) gave his opinion on the acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker’s replacement of Jeff Sessions.

CBS’s Margaret Brennan asked Sen. Graham, “[A]re you going to ask [Whitaker] to recuse himself and is Matthew Whitaker’s appointment constitutional?”

“I think he was appropriately appointed legally,” Graham replied. “I don’t think he has to recuse himself. I am confident the Mueller investigation will be allowed to come to a good, solid conclusion, that there’ll be no political influence put on [FBI special counsel Robert Mueller] by Mr. Whitaker to do anything other than Mr. Mueller’s job.”

Brennan asked if Whitaker has the ability to remain “impartial.”

“Well, you don’t recuse somebody because they have opinions different than the people they’re overseeing. … The bottom line here is that Mr. Mueller will be allowed to do his job without political interference by Mr. Whitaker.”

    Shhhhh, don’t tell the Dimwits that. They are convinced only they are capable of impartiality.

  • willy91137

    We already have an acting Atty. Gen. Ron Rosenstein Denny dimwit should not be there

    • rad77red

      Yeah , & he is as worthless as you are !!!

    • Terry White

      Rosenstein most likely will be in prison before too long. Then where will we be? No AG at all?

    • Randy131

      Rosenstein was never appointed as an active AG, but only put in charge of the Special Counsel to oversee it’s investigation and make sure the investigation sticks to what it was instituted for, Russian interference into our election and any collusion with any American citizens to affect our election in one way or another. In that Rosenstein has also failed, as Mueller has taken the investigation into things that has had nothing to do with Russian interference or collusion by Americans with Russians to affect the election. During the entire time Sessions has remained the AG and performed that job, until just recently when he resigned, giving President Trump the authority by federal law to appoint a temporary AG until he can select one to go through the US Senate confirmation circus for the permanent AG position in his cabinet. This temporary appointment meets all aspects of the law which allows the President to appoint a temporary AG to fill the position for a limited amount of time.

    Mr. Mueller cannot truthfully say with God as his witness, he has not had political interference from the left, the Democrats! Thus so much for a thought of impartiality and truth. It will not happen as he has been emboldened by the failures of the GOP to get the job done for Obamacare, Immigration Law and Policy, Voter ID and The Border Wall effort! To many mavericks and egotistical Senators who lost a major election years ago, McCain, Lindsey Graham and three other what’s in it for me representatives.

      Why would they interfere? Mueller, himself is a Democrat, and everyone involved are Democrats. I personally think this witch hunt has gone on long enough, and I am tired as a taxpayer to be funding it.

      Do not blame the Dem because it is with the GOP to mustard up enough votes of there own,

  • Wade

    The Democrats new thinking is that Republicans should follow the law and protocol, but when it’s them, following the law, protocol and being civil and sensible is thrown out the window. The mid-term elections prove my point, They will lie, cheat and steal to gain power back. I truly believe that there is nothing they wouldn’t do to regain power. People will probably die because of them if they haven’t already.

  • Wade

    There was a time when both Democrats and Republicans despised Communist and Socialistic agendas. But, in fact, the Socialist and Communist have infiltrated the Democratic Party and are on their way to hijacking that Party. It seems that some of these women and men recently elected to the House of Representatives think that they were elected to further their own cause and agendas. I don’t think American Government is taught in school any more. I was taught that elected officials were paid by all taxpayers and therefore represented all people. What happened???

    Another person to try to make new laws to empower the Trumpster.
